Mission Statement

It is the mission of the  Community Foundation of Whitley County to inspire philanthropy, enrich community, and serve donors by creating an enduring source of charitable assets.

History of the Foundation

Where we’ve been. Where we’re going.
In 1991, local community leaders shared a powerful vision. They understood the strength of endowed philanthropy and believed that through the creation of a local community foundation, endowment funds could be established and nurtured to meet the changing needs of our area.

Today we manage an endowed asset base of over $25 million. We use this asset base to award grants to local nonprofit organizations that provide a range of services throughout Whitley County.  Watch the video to see how even a small donation from you can help make our community a better place to live.
